About the Winery
Located in Pescara in the central part of Italy, the La Valentina Estate overlooks the beautiful Spoltore. Sabatino and Roberto e Andrea Di Properzio established this estate in 1994. The owners were quite passionate about winemaking, and they learnt a lot through their experience working in the Saint Teresa Vineyards nearby.
The main aim of the La Valentina estate was to get recognition all over Italy and the world, for the excellent quality of DOC wines crafted in the Abruzzo region. Minimal intervention is followed at the vineyards for the wine to reflect the true and natural character of the terroirs where the fruits are grown. The team doesn’t use herbicides or desiccants to the soil, keeping the vines as natural as possible. Organic green manure is used as a natural fertilizer, and the fruits are always hand-harvested to ensure that the best quality of fruits is sent for further processing.
The popular wines from this estate are:
Bellovedere - This is a red wine made from Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo grapes grown on the 2-hectare cru Bellovedere in the Spoltore district.
Linea Classica – This is also a red wine made from the same varietal as above. However, these grapes are grown in different parcels. The grapes for this wine are grown on the 30-hectare vineyard in the districts of Spoltore and San Valentino e Scafa.
Binomia – This wine is made using grapes grown on the beautiful estate of Binomia. This vineyard is nicely nestled between the sea and mountains. These wines are designed to release the potential of the highly intense Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo grapes.
Since the combination of terroirs and soil is unique in the La Valentina estate, the wines created by this label are extremely intense and elegant. Today, this farm is known to be one of the most environmentally aware farms in the region of central Italy.
